    The troops loved IKE.

    Ike?

    Multi-billionaire.

    Daddy bailed him out whenever he got caught failing.

    Married to three different women.

    Was the star of The Hollywood Access Tape.

    Told Americans it is ok to grope women if you are wealthy.

    Avoided serving in the Military through spurious deferments.

    Is an unindicted co-conspirator.

    Thank goodness for the sacrifices made by ALL Americans who have served our country in the military .
